FRYEBURG — The MSAD 72 school board recently heard a few of the administration's proposals for replacing the C.A. Snow School building. One of the proposals would close all of the elementary schools in the Fryeburg area and create one large school housing elementary and middle school students.
Whatever form the replacement takes, the new school would be located on the site of the Molly Ockett Middle School.

Denton, an Iraq war veteran who served in the Army, will be available to assist veterans in obtaining the benefits they have earned, opening cases with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and to discuss any and all issues facing the veteran community.
"It is important for me, my office, and for the federal government as a whole to reach out to veterans where they are and engage with them on the issues that truly matter to their community," Shea-Porter said. "Ensuring access to veterans' benefits has always been critical to my work in Congress, and I encourage veterans facing challenges to visit our open office hours or contact our office at any time."
Shea-Porter recently announced her support for a number of bills to address the VA backlog of claims for disability compensation.
"This package of seven bills includes innovative and common sense approaches to settling veterans' claims and compensation faster," she said.
Shea-Porter has attended numerous events for veterans across the district such as the Vietnam Veterans Welcome Home Ceremony in Concord, a medal presentation ceremony for a World War II veteran from Dover, and the conference for Disabled American Veterans in North Conway.
"Soldiers pledge never to leave one of their own behind on the battlefield, and we should honor that pledge by promising never to leave a veteran or military family behind," she said. "Veterans deserve access to quality health care, a good job, and an affordable education, and if any veteran feels our country is falling short on this pledge, I encourage them to contact my office and see where we can help."
